TWIX – A1063151
Safe - 1-22-2016 Staten Island Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 01/22/16 *** Some people can’t say NO and it appears BLAIRE, SIMMONE and TWIX belonged to one such person. Their former owner had “too many pets” and decided to address that issue by bringing some cats to the ACC. Read their notes carefully, because all three if these beauties have a different combination of circumstances, although they all came out of a home where ringworm was present. If the ACC vets are correct—and that’s a BIG IF—the breakdown is as follows: BLAIRE is NEW HOPE ONLY and Wood’s lamp negative; SIMMONE is PREGNANT, available to the public, and Wood’s lamp positive; and TWIX is available to the public and Wood’s lamp negative. No matter what, these beauties do NOT deserve to be killed tomorrow, with no sedation, and then stuffed into black plastic freezer bags. Please advocate strongly for these cats tonight, and message [email protected] if you have questions about foster/adoption.
